Will Salem ever get over the "witch thing?" This city has a lot of
potential, but all we seem to get is more kitchy witch and tourist
crap. The city was supposed to have a big public art plan with an eye
on bringing something, you know, cultural to area. That appears to have
been sunk by the usual cadre of know-nothings that don't want to see
anything above the level of "Real Housewives," here. We have a great
art museum, but nobody wants to work with them. Our Arts Fest was great
for music, but utter garbage for visual arts. Embarrassingly bad in that regard.
So, what will it take to change things, or are we forever doomed to be a town of 'psychics' and t-shirt vendors?
